2024 Winter In-person Conference

From Hiatus to Hard Reset

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2024 “THAT WAS SO 2020” conference. It was an enlightening experience to delve into how the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped our world, with a special focus on Independent Study. Together, we explored a range of critical topics, including the impact of ChatGPT, navigating gender issues, addressing the opioid crisis, and strategies for enhancing student engagement and motivation amidst regulatory challenges.

The discussions were not only refreshing but also deeply informative, offering valuable insights and potential solutions to the unique challenges faced by students and educators today. Your participation made this conference a vibrant forum for exchange and growth.
